United Kingdom 2008 Range Rover Vogue SE TDV8 Java Black

Oddly we looked at both the 3 series (folding hard topped) and the 6 series Cab before buying the FFRR.......in the end the pull of the sunshine was outweighed by the need for 5 seats and room for grand kids crap.

Oh well, we did recently do the soft top stuff with a Porker...... David

Please let me know if my comments upset you, I may wish to upset you again.

That was a criteria when I was looking, had to be a 4 seat, so that ruled out some of the other options. 997 would be too small, z3/4m too small, most other convertibles bar the A4 and CLK didn’t fit the bill and weren’t quick enough to be exciting. So now we have the Fiat for swmbo to trash, ff for me and smart family duties and the M3 for high days and holidays. Very Happy There is nothing that can't be fixed with a hammer😜😜

Well it's my first rear wheel drive and I must say it goes well especially in sport mode. Parked next to the RR
It looks like you could slide underneath it.

You don't see many e36 in good condition I think most were drifted into oblivion so no I don't think you will
See a loss. A 911 porker would be in my list next but for what I paid for the e46 I can't complain
And will not loose any money either. 911 prices are going through the roof at the moment.

after a bit of tinkering which has included but is not limited to a new set of manifolds, it is back on the deck




making the right noises, it has a few jobs outstanding on it:

some bodywork,
Vanos man is coming
rear bushes
figure out why one of the rear fogs isn't working.

then its all done and probably one of the better E36 convertibles out there!! There is nothing that can't be fixed with a hammer😜😜

So with all the bits and bobs it’s had done to it over the last few months. It’s finally been to the MOT garage.

PASSED!!! Very Happy

No advisories either! So I’m well chuffed. There is nothing that can't be fixed with a hammer😜😜
